If you’re a fan of dominos, then maybe you should take a second look at these huge blocks. Not only can they be hung from a wall, but they will also stand on their own somewhere in your lovely abode, all the while telling you the time. Thanks to Carbon Design Group, this new Domino Clock is a concept that, if everything goes to plan, will be made into a real working clock in the early part of 2011.
The concept design is a pretty simple one. It’s three dominos, put right next to one another, which are connected wirelessly. The dots on the face of the blocks are what tell you the time. The articulated “dots” will flip back and forth, and create the design on the front of the block to tell you the time in hours, and minutes. Right now, as we mentioned above, the Domino Clock is regrettably just a concept design, but the folks at Carbon Design are planning on making it a real thing in 2011. They plan on hanging it up on their office wall. Of course, we hope they start dreaming a bit bigger, and offer it to the general populace. It really would make a great wall ornament in the office.
